Daily Tips – County can boost promotion hopes

Notts County

Notts County remain well in the promotion hunt and can boost their hopes against Chesterfield on Sunday.

The Spireites, in contrast, sit 23rd, six points from safety but have shown signs of spirit in recent weeks and it appears their home form could be their saviour.

A recent win over Swindon gave them hope, while they also drew 1-1 last time out at Cheltenham.

The Magpies were the early pacesetters but endured a mixed January. However, a tweak in formation has seen them avoid defeat in six of their last seven and a win today will leave them just a point short of third place Wycombe.

It is likely to be a decent atmosphere at the Proact Stadium, with plenty of away fans expected to make their way up the M1, with just 29.1 miles between the teams.

Notts County look a very encouraging price at 11/10 but I do not expect them to have it all their own way.

Jack Lester’s side have scored in their last three outings and it could well turn out that the away win and both to score at 16/5 is the answer for us here.

Elsewhere and there could be a case of the new manager bounce in League One.

Karl Robinson took over at Oxford earlier this week and takes his new side to Portsmouth, who will be buoyed by winning 2-0 at Oldham last time out.

The U’s themselves picked up their first victory of the month against Peterborough and are unbeaten in their last four trips to Fratton Park.

Robinson will have spent the last few days firing into his players and having seen the Addicks win without him on Saturday, 33/10 for an Oxford triumph could be the value bet of the day.
